The Moth is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to the art of storytelling, and to showcasing the nation’s finest storytellers. According to the website, The Moth, “is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it.” Launched in 1997, the Moth hosts live storytelling events in several locations across the country, where storytellers present their tales live and without notes on the theme of the night to sold-out crowds. The stories are then shared through The Moth Radio Hour and The Moth Podcast to listeners who missed the live events.
The next Moth StorySLAM will be held on Thursday, April 19, at 7:30 PM. The StorySLAM will take place at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on Crosby Street. The theme of the night is ‘Armor.’ To buy tickets or learn more about the event, visit The Moth website at themoth.org/events.
